DIY TUTORIAL: HOW TO MAKE A STUDDED LACE CORSET OUT OF A BRA

Hello, hello!
Today I'm the most tired person on earth, yesterday I went to sleep at 4.40 am and I woke up at 10.30 am this morning. Why? Oh, well. Probably because I was quite excited to show you the new DIY I made on how to make a corset out of a bra (I usually get inspired by bras and studs, do I? ahaha).
Corsets are everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE. But the topshop ones are quite expensive, so I would never ever spend £30 for that, most of all because it was just an itch I had to scratch.
Then I decided to make one by myself..
Hope you like the tutorial and the result (;

Things you need
-Bra
-Lace top or fabric (I bought mine from a thrift store for 1€)
-Studs
-Hot glue gun

Time
2 hours

-First of all pin your bra on your top to get the shape (if you have a chalk, you can use it too)
Photobucket

-Cut the top following the bra shape

-Cut the back part of the top

-Glue the borders of your bra

-Stick the top
Photobucket

-Cut out the excess (and the straps too, I realize later that I wanted the corset to be strapless)
Photobucket

-Take the sleeve of the top, cut it to have another piece of lace fabric that you need to glue in the inside part to avoid transparency
Photobucket

-You should get something like this

-If your top got white in some parts because of the glue, just cover the spots with some pieces of fabric

-Take your studs, put the two "tails" inside, s shown in the picture
Photobucket

-Create the pattern that you prefer (I couldn't recreate exactly the pattern of my inspiration top, because I didn't have enough studs)

You're done! This is absolutely amazing with high waisted things!
